"Threadbare Gypsy Soul" as written by and Pat Green....
Got myself a threadbare gypsy soul
Likes to dance and drink and go wherever the wind blows
Gotta little threadbare gypsy soul
Gotta little threadbare gypsy soul

Gotta little wild streak in my heart
I guess that I have had it since I heard the music start
I gotta little wild streak in my heart
I gotta little threadbare gypsy soul

I like to hear the highway sounds
And I don't think that I'll ever settle down
I can't change and it's a sin
Hope St. Peter gonna let me in
Come on Pete won't you let me in

I wear this cowboy hat up on my head
And you can take it off me some time after I am dead
Gotta cowboy hat up on my head
Gotta little threadbare gypsy soul

I wear these crusty shoes down on my feet
I could write a book about the places that they've seen
I got these crusty shoes down on my feet
I got a little wild streak in my heart

I like to hear the highway sounds
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever settle down
And I can't change and it's a sin
I hope St. Peter's gonna let me in
Come on Pete won't you let me in

I know this crazy living just ain't right
Most of the time I'm smoking, drinking, looking for a fight
But I've been talkin' to Jesus every day
And I've been talkin' to Jesus every day

And I got this girl back home I call my wife
If you ever met her, I swear she would change your life
She's gotta little wild streak in her heart
But she's been saying hallelujah every day

I like to hear the highway sounds
And I don't think that I'll ever settle down
I can't change and it might be a sin
Hope St. Peter gonna let me in
Got my gypsy soul to bear, amen

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite Pat Green song. The fact that Willie Nelson sings in it makes it all the better. This song appeals to me because I can relate to much of the lyrics, including the love for the road, the love of everything that a cowboy stands for, etc. The line "I can't change and it's a sin, I hope Saint Peter's gonna let me in" is cool. It's like we know who were are as a person, we know that we're not perfect; we just hope that we can find someone who'll accept us for all our faults and love us for it. Great song.
